Busy month this. February usually is, as I go away somewhere to forget the trauma that is my impending birthday.
Went to Amsterdam for a weekend, and also went to Rotterdam for a day. Both nice cities.
Went to football matches in both cities, both were enjoyable, but I enjoyed seeing Excelsior Rotterdam the most. Managed to get some brilliant photos of the ground and match when I was there.
Excelsior’s ground, Woudestein, has a stand named after Robin Van Persie. The club’s bar also has various pictures of him from throughout his career. In case you’re wondering, he began his career there.
Little did I know then, that six months later, he would be a Manchester United player.
It was snowing as well whenever I was there, which made for great photo opportunities.
That wasn’t the only travelling done that month, as I went to Old Trafford for the UEFA Cup tie between Manchester United and Ajax, and even managed to fit in trips to Portadown and North Belfast to watch Linfield.
This year, February had an extra day, and I made the most of it by going to see Northern Ireland v Norway.
It wasn’t all about football, as I went to see Noel Gallagher at The Odyssey.
A very photo-filled month. Enjoy
